9/25/1752 <Here and there are stretches of oak and other woods, indicating better soil, and here the farms are located, that is farms of a North Carolina kind, for with the exception of corn (of which a good deal is raised), and hogs (the chief support of most of the farmers), the work is poorly done. Cattle and horses must look out for themselves in winter, if they live, they live. NO hay is given them, for no one makes meadows; fodder does not go far, and who could feed them on grain? So ordinarily in winter there is neither milk nor manure, and when spring comes the animals are so reduced by hunger and cold that they hardly recover before fall. So even in spring and summer they do the people little good. Probably this is the reason that horses and cttle are so small in the part of North Carolina which we have seen, not larger than English colts and yearling calves.> Diary of Bishop August Gottlieb Spangenberg.

11/11/1752 <The Indians in North Carolina behave quite differently from those in Pennsylvania. There no one fears an Indian unless indeed he is drunk. Here the whites must needs fear them. If they come to a house and find the man away they are insolent, and the settler's wife must do whatever they bid. Sometimes they come in such large companies that a man who meets them is in real danger. . . . Every man living alone is in this danger, here in the forest. North Carolina has been at war with the Indians, and they have been defeated and have lost their lands. So not only the tribes that were directly concerned, but all the Indians are resentful and take every opportunity to show it. Indeed they have not only killed the cattle of the whites, but have murdered the settlers themselves when they had a chance.> Diary of Bishop August Gottlieb Spangenberg. FRIES:48

11/11/1752 <There are other things to make life hard for those living alone and for themselves. For instance a woman is ill, has high fever -- where is the nurse, medicine, proper food? The wife of the nearest neighbor lives half a mile, perhaps several miles away, and she has her children, her cattle, her own household, to care for, and can give her only a couple of hours, or at most one day or one night.> He recommends that the Moravians settle <six to ten families together, each in its own house, all working under a capable overseer,> then <after a time, if any wishes to settle on his own farm, as in Pennsylvania, then to try to arrange it.> Diary of Bishop August Gottlieb Spangenberg.

From the diary of George Soelle, 1771-72. In April 1771 he was along the Yadkin, where he noted that the <neighbors are nearly all Regulators.> <The people about here are wild>, he wrote. He traveled widely among the settlers, including: Jonathan and Mary Carter Boone. William (Billy) and Elizabeth Boone Grant, whose household included 23 persons, and whom, Soelle noted were <the only family in this neighborhood that has ears> for his message. John Boone, Squire's cousin, married to Rebecca Bryan, Rebecca Bryan Boone's aunt; Soelle noted that he would <probably join the Baptists for the sake of Communion>. Morgan Bryan, a wealthy farmer who owned nearly over 2000 acres in Rowan County, and probably a good deal more elsewhere, with 810 acres in the Bryan Settlement. William (Billy) Bryan, married to Mary Boone, DB's sister, who had been baptised by a Moravian. He returned there in June 1772, and visited with "old mother Boone," a Quaker, living with Billy and Mary Boone Bryan. He also stopped with Joseph Bryan, Rebecca's father, <a polite and affable man>, well-to-do but illiterate, whose <people seem to have much of this world's goods>, although Joseph was <as yet without eyes or ears> for the Christian message, but who allowed Soelle to hold a service, attended by many in the neighborhood, near his spring in the shade of a grove. In September 1771 he traveled west <a good day's ride to the mountains> over a very bad path. The country was thinly populated, most of the settlers having arrived only in the previous two or three years. The settlers there, he noted, were <a forsaken people, to whom no one ever went, and it was more than sixty miles to the Yadkin.> He visited at the home home of "Nathanael Buhn," perhaps Daniel Boone, who was married to one of Joseph Bryan's daughters [Rebecca]. Spent the night with Morgan Bryan and visited his sons James, William, Samuel and John, and George Boone (married to a Morgan Bryan's granddaughter) in July 1773. FRIES:788-94,803

Three ususal crossings of the river: Glen's Ferry (from Bethania to Murphee's), the Shallow Ford (now on what is known as the Lewisville road), Idol's ferry, from Douthit's to David Jones'. This last is the one where, local tradition holds, DB crossed and recrossed the Yadkin. [This may have been what was also known as the Trading Ford, where the Great Trading Path crossed the Yadkin, about where I-85 crosses now.] It is now destroyed by the waters of High Rock Lake, created by a hydropower dam on the Yadkin.

Proclamation Money: the term comes for the Proclamation of 1705 "for settling and ascertaining the Current Rates of foreign Coins in all Her Majesty's Plantations in America." Originally, then, the term referred to all foreign coin circulating in the colonies, at the rates of exchange specified in the proclamation. By analogy, it also came to mean the new paper bills issued by the colonies -- North Carolina, for example -- of intended equal value. FRIES:629

From the Wachovia Church Book, 1761: <War with the Cherokees continued. The South Carolinians marched into their country and destroyed about 800 houses in 15 of their towns, also more than 1500 acres of corn. The Virginians attacked the Overhills Indians, and 400 men from North Carolina and some 50 Tuscaroras accompanied them. There was much passing to and fro through our settlement, and the troops finally disbanded here. . . . Toward the end of the year peace was made with the Cherokees.> FRIES:234

Summaries from the Bethabara Diary: In February 1760 there was great alarm on the Yadkin, a large party of Indians sighted headed there. In March the Indians tried to lure the soldiers out of Fort Dobbs, and there was a fight. Families on the Yadkin forted up. Indians came to Behabara and surrounded the settlements. Several settlers were attacked, and several killed. Things quieted down in the spring. But August brought new alarms. Fort Loudon fell. In September the Indians were near again. Soldiers were stationed on the Yadkin. News came of the conquest of Canada in October. FRIES:229-233

From the Bethabara diary: 1/7/1756 <Toward evening two men arrived who were returning from the attack on the Highwaymen. They reported that the fort had been burned, and five women and eleven children captured, but the Highwaymen themselves had escaped. On the 19th two other men came who said they had met and spoken with the Highwaymen, but being too few in number to capture them they had been obliged to do nothing. On the 22nd a troop of the pursuers passed, with one prisoner, a Highwayman named Cumberland. They left with us a horse which they had taken from another Highwayman, and which was too worn out to be driven futther. On the 27th the original owner of the stolen horse came for it. On the 28th Mr. Althem came by. He had with him two sons of the Highwayman Owen, also Owen's sister-in-law (they had been in prison). He reported that Owen had talked with one of his pursuers, who was not able to capture him and his companions, and that Owen had sent by this man a message to the Court to the effect that if it was decided to bind out his sons he wanted them sent to the Moravians, one to be apprenticed to the tailor and the other to a carpenter.> But this was not done. 5/18/1756: <The Highwaymen captured some time ago have been condemned to the gallows.> FRIES:161

Groups of Indians had been extorting goods from settlers at their cabins. A nearby settler came, asking to stay, with the story that the Indians had entered his house while he and his family had been working in their fields, and had taken all their best clothing and their money. <They are local Cherokees and not French or other strange Indians.> FRIES:165-6

Travel diary of the Moravian company, from Pennsylvania to North Carolina, fall 1753, kept by Matthaeus Heel. After Harris Ferry the roads became worse, and no one could ride the heavily loaded wagons, but had to push to help the horses up the hills. Sometimes the people they met were surly, usually friendly and helpful. They <had constantly to push the wagon, or hold it back by ropes that we fastened to the rear.> Rain so muddied the road that they <had to take off half our load in order to climb a hill, for it was so slippery the horses could not keep their footing, but fell constantly to their knees> FRIES:77.

Many people took their sick to the Moravian colony, where there was a doctor. According to the diarist of the Bethabara settlement, 8/14/1754: <People have come more than a hundred miles to get medicine and advice.> Many, perhaps most, of these, were from the Yadkin settlements. <When one studies the matter it appears that the illnesses of the people there result from their irregular living, now with an abundance of food, now in want, and doing little of the work to which they were previously accustomed.> FRIES:105

She was alone with her children, her husband away looking for stray horses. <During the night, as she waited for her husband, the dogs had become very restless, and running toward the woods had returned howling. She went to see who was there, and stones flew by her; then running into the house she took the children and hastened away. As she fled she saw three persons spring into the house, but did not know whether they were whites or Indians. So she and the children fled into the woods, and fortunately found their way hither.> FRIES:134

In 1750 NC authorities ruled that to be eligible for appointment as a justice of the peace, a man must have lived in the country for three years.

On their tract, the Moravian settlers found <an Irishman who is living on our land and has cleared seven acres. He seems to be a decent man; has nine children. At first the family were frightened and shy, but the Brethren drew them into conversation, and they became friendly, expressed their regret at having to move, and asked whether they might not stay and raise one more crop. The Brethren did not know what answer to make to them.> Not all new settlers would be so tolerant. FRIES2:83

9/25/1752 <Having crossed the length and breadth of North Carolina we have found that toward the west, nearer the mountains, many families are moving in from Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Jersey, and even New England; in this year alone more than four hundred families have come with horse and wagon and cattle.
